even though this recording is only about 30 minutes long, it may be one of the best half hours of the dead ever.

Subject: This is not DP Vol. 4 and/or Bear's Choice!!!!!!!!!!!
Why the HECK did someone put the smack-down on this show when it CLEARLY has not been commercially released as DP Vol. 4 and/or Bear's Choice???? This makes me very, VERY angry!...


Oh, this is Download Vol. 08. Still, this is not - I repeat: NOT - DP Vol. 4 and/or Bear's Choice. This discrepancy has essentially ruined the flow of my morning. I am going to get a cup of hot coffee now to hopefully iron things out here.




Ah, I see the commercial release reference has been adjusted per my review - and rather promptly, I might add. It appears folk who run this site are more on top of their game than I initially thought and/or alluded to. My sincere apologies. Thanks for the update.
